I'm planning a build around an ASUS Z87-PRO motherboard and Intel Core i5-4670K CPU. I had the Scythe Mugen 4 in mind for cooling, but now I've gone and confused myself by reading various reviews online.
Is the Mugen 4 the best choice for cooling and silence? Should I go with the Noctua DH14? What about the lower-profile Noctua coolers? Or something else entirely? I note the Mugen 4 review here suggests the Thermalright HR-02 Macho, and though I am loath to put something labeled "Macho" in my computer, I'll do it if it would make my life better.
On a related note, these coolers tend to be ridiculously huge. If I fill all four RAM slots, am I going to run into problems with the RAM overheating due to proximity to the heatsink? Also, what about moving the computer? I'll be taking it on a cross-country move in a few months. Is there anything I should do to prevent the gargantuan heatsink from ripping the motherboard in half the first time I go over a speed bump? (I'm assuming it's best to lay the case on its side on the back seat of my car, preferably in the box the case shipped in.)
